The Illinois Corn Growers Association and Illinois Corn Marketing Board are excited to announce three summer internships for college students in a two- or four-year college or university. Come work with us!
The IL Corn Legislative Internship is an opportunity for students interested in pursuing a career in Springfield or Washington, DC, helping our elected officials. This student will be job shadowing our lobbyists in Springfield, coordinating the Illinois Corn Growers Association Washington, DC fly-in in July, participating in policy development for our association and the National Corn Growers Association, and listening in on weekly strategy sessions.
The best student for this internship is one with an awareness of agriculture, who has already exhibited an interest in policy development or political involvement via relevant course work, volunteering on a campaign, or otherwise showing political engagement.
